Rick Bisgyer Porcelain


321 Ericsson Ave. Betterton, MD 21610

Working in porcelain I create wheel thrown vessels inspired by the graceful curves of sails and hulls, and the ever-changing character of wind over water. Porcelain is the most demanding of all clay bodies and my extreme shapes are a constant challenge, yet a feeling of effortlessness and serenity is conveyed through these pieces. My glaze colors evoke the sea and sky as they change through the day, giving a sense of upward movement that complements the narrow based, broad shouldered forms.

Art should touch the viewer as much or even more than the artist. I love color, form and line.  I want to use those elements to capture a mood and lighting.  I prefer to mix architectural and natural elements into my images. There is a Navajo prayer that affirms a desire to "walk in beauty" that I hold dear. I have produced murals, decorative and faux images, impressionistic and abstract images. My preference for oils and pastels stems from a love of the rich color each has.

Breon is a proficient practitioner of the metal arts, in tune with the physical capabilities and limits of her materials; welding, forging, and hammering steel and found objects into novel forms and relationships; she makes sculptural forms and functional objects. Her inner world of invention invites viewers to explore the various surfaces; through visual quotation, discovery and delight-in-making, comes a sense of awe, of “being” in the world.

22409 Goose Hollow Dr, Chestertown, MD 21620

I have been creating metal art for the last 13 years as a fulltime endeavor. I jumped off not knowing if I would have enough ideas. Little did I know that I will run out of time before I run out of ideas! Nature is a huge inspiration coupled with the continued question of asking myself,  What If?   My current focus has been smaller sculpture work in stainless steel.

I have been an artist my whole life. Most of my studio time has been spent making pottery out of terra cotta and porcelain clay. Decoration and mark making has been an integral part of my work. During the past year I have started exploring linoleum block printing on fabric. It has sparked a new way to explore function and surface decoration. I am inspired by and draw from the patterns that are found in nature and use them in my designs.

Mary Pritchard Art


119 High St., Chestertown, MD 21620

For many years I have used pastel's beautiful pigments to depict the farms and rivers of Maryland's Eastern Shore.  The architecture of a working farmyard provides an endless source of inspiration while my paintings of creeks and rivers near Chestertown  deal with the complexity of nature in the interplay of light, water, and tangled grasses.  Most recently, painting trips to Maine have provided a new challenge--portraying the dynamic interaction of waves and rocks on its rugged coastline.

My approach to painting is intuitive. I make a mark and I follow its lead, paying careful attention to stopping points along the way to identify the finishing point. This does not change. My abstract work over the last year however has developed a structural element loosely based on a grid. I have also developed a plein air practice. How and if these will interact and inform each other remains to be seen. Come see the work. It articulates itself better than I can.

Doug Sassi Pottery


12740 Still Pond Road, Still Pond, MD 21667

Stoneware functional pottery made with my own special blend of six different American clays.  Glazes are also compounded and mixed in the studio.  The recipes for the clay body and the glazes have been in use by me since 1962.  The pottery is microwave and dishwasher safe.  The pottery can be used in conventional ovens if care is taken to heat the pieces evenly. We've been in our Still Pond location since 1978 and have participated in every studio tour since the beginning in 2000.

308 Park Row, Chestertown, MD 21620

To me, photography is an adrenaline rush.  I pursue the nuances and wonders of living creatures and landscapes, whether my image is a coincidence or a moment I waited hours to capture.   Birds, animals, flowers, weather, and water beckon. My primary desire is to link humans to nature’s intimacy, reflected in God's palette.

When I retired, I wanted to open a yarn shop to share my love of knitting. What I really wanted to do was knit and teach the love of knitting. With the help of world class knitting instructors, I learned not only how to make my garments handmade rather than homemade, but also how to teach others to do the same. I have taught in Maryland and Maine for 20 years. In my NEW studio you will see beautiful designer garments made with the best yarns in beautiful colors and color combinations.
